We were experimenting with different kids of ribs. We came up with this. It sounds like a lot but it really isn't. The dry rub you can store in an air tight container in the cupboard. I usually use western style ribs (more meat) and I make a double batch of the barbecue sauce and dry rub. You can also use the rub and sauce on chicken. I have been asked for this recipe many times. There is never any left over. My son asked for these as his birthday dinner. Hope you all enjoy.
